Senator Martin Renews Calls for End to Fall Time Change
(Lancaster County, PA) -- A Republican state Senator from Lancaster is renewing his call to do away with the fall time change. Senator Scott Martin has proposed legislation that the federal government stick with Daylight Saving Time instead of changing clocks twice a year. Martin introduced a resolution earlier this year which urges Congress to make daylight saving time permanent. He says every time we change the clocks, people suffer from more health problems, accidents and a lack of productivity. The National Conference of State Legislatures says lawmakers have considered at least 450 bills and resolutions in recent years to establish year-round daylight saving time, as soon as federal law allows it.
